Make a white poppy and promote peace

NORTHERN Rivers peace group Remembering and Healing (RaH) is holding a white poppy making workshop on Thursday, 21 April from noon until 2pm in the foyer of Lismore Library.

Everybody is invited to join in, to make their own white poppy (or collect one).

White Poppies are a symbol expressing the commitment to remember all casualties of all wars, and the wish for the end of wars as a means of addressing conflicts.

White poppies have a long tradition: since 1929 they have been used internationally by different groups as a pledge to peace.

This workshop is held in conjunction with the First World War exhibition, presently shown in the foyer of the Lismore Library (until May 2).

The main themes of the exhibition, peacemaking rather than military action, non-violence rather than violence, challenge the assumptions of militarism.
